Imam_Moosa_SadrLebanon’s Judiciary Council is scheduled to open file on disappeared Shi’a leader Imam Moussa Sadr for a new survey on March 4th, 2011.

The Presiding Judge at the Lebanese Judiciary Council Qaleb Qanem said here Friday that the file on the disappearance of Imam Moussa Sadr and his companions
Imam Moussa Sadr was disappeared in Libya on July 31st, 1978, on the last leg of his visits of a number of Arab countries, while he had arrived in Libya on an official invitation of Moammad Qazzafi on July 25th of the same year.

The judiciary forces of Lebanon, Italy and Vatican that had separately launched investigations of the matter have unanimously and officially rejected Tripoli’s claim that Imam Moussa Sadr had departed Libya for Rome.

According to the bulk of the collected overt and covert information during the course of the past two decades on the matter, Imam Moussa Sadr and his companion never left the Libyan soil after their arrival in that country.

There are also numerous reports revealing that Imam Moussa Sadr is still alive and like some other Muslim top scholars in Libya, imprisoned till death.

According to the last report on the matter, quoted in the website of the National Liberation Front of Libya on May 3rd, 2001, in late winter of 1997 some prisoners at Abu Salim Prison of Tripoli had seen Imam Moussa Sadr, but shortly before the beginning of the fasting month of Ramadhan that year he had been transferred to another unidentified position.

Politicians from Lebanon’s Shi’a community have long demanded judicial action in the Sadr disappearance case and hold Qazzafi’s regime responsible for revealing Sadr’s fate. Beirut boycotted the latest Arab Summit, held in Libya, over the issue.

However, Qanem’s term as head of the Judicial Council will officially end this month, as he reaches the official age of retirement.

His post will remain vacant until the government appoints a successor, and the Cabinet has been in limbo since early November over political disputes related to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

">  who were on an official visit of Libya at the time would be re-opened on March 4th for broader survey, adding, “The main culprits in the case include the Libyan Leader Moammar Qazzafi and his first deputy at the time.
